"There’s nothing funny about her," one critic raged.
KIM'S ACTING CV
Kim famously found reality TV fame on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and, currently, Hulu's The Kardashians.
She also recently starred as a publicist in FX's American Horror Story: Delicate and lent her voice to two Paw Patrol films.
She was also a knee-slapper on SNL back in 2022, winning over fans with a funny monologue full of self-aware jokes.
But she also had a few more surprising acting stints while finding superstardom.
Just a month before her reality TV era began, Kim had a steamy role in a Fall Out Boy music video that also starred a chimpanzee.
And perhaps most regrettably she starred in 2008's Disaster Movie.
Years later, she confessed on the ABC game show Big Fan that she was "mortified" by the movie, and admitted she can't even watch it.
As Deadline noted, she's still done "limited work" as far as acting goes.
It's unknown who else will be cast in the flick, or when it will be released.
